states. that's a mandate. it's unthinkable that any candidate can win anywhere close to that. obama won a pretty impressive victory even without a serious third party candidate, he did not get 51% of the popular vote. he won 26 states to romney's 24 states. we'll see time after time very, very close elections. we need to rethink the negotiations of mandates and say this person won the presidency. they need to go forward with that agenda. >> what about the republicans? are they going to do a big rethink here? >> yes, and more than one. it was interesting that the republican governors happened to be meeting this week in las vegas when this news about the interesting comments that romney made to his donors that we just saw and the republican governors, bobby jindal of louisiana did not miss five seconds before they really denounced what romney was saying. the republicans have a lot of things to think about, not of which is their growing problem with hispanic voters. that is the big growing group in this country. republicans are still largely a party of white people and older white people.
with america's immediate neighbors. last year the obama administration blocked an extension to the keystone excel pipeline that would help deliver oil from canada's tar sands, eyely controversy bull productive sands to the gulf of mexico. largely on environmental grounds. now the state department is reviewing the pipeline route. the pipeline will likely get approval and get built. either way, the energy relationship between the u.s. and canada will continue to grow. and while president obama meets with his newly elected mexican counter part this month, a major topic will be obama's goil goal for immigration reform. it's a domestic issue with regional economic implications for both the united states and mexico. so president obama has got a lot to think about. joining me now is fareed zakaria. he is host of "gps." you understand the economy and foreign affairs. let's talk about europe first of all. you get the impression that china was the biggest economic threat to the united states. but if europe doesn't get its act together, the trade between europe and the u.s. is greater. should the pres
it is his fault. >> reporter: just after president obama was inaugurated, we spent time in king county. >> i just ask god that he would truly connect with him so he would know what god's heart was for the united states of america. >> reporter: you told us four years ago that you hoped the lord would help barack obama. >> yes. >> reporter: do you think that happened? >> it doesn't appear so. >> reporter: and then there was something we heard before. what bothers you about president obama's first term. >> that he lied to us about where he was born. to me he just seems dishonest. >> reporter: he said he was born in hawaii and he's said that for a long time. and i wonder if you have heard that and if you have, why don't you believe that? >> i just don't believe anything he says. >> reporter: there are certainly people in king county that still don't believe the president about his country of birth and they don't believe him about his faith. he says he's a devout chris, but doubts about that exist. >> i think he's a muslim. >> back at the basketball game, it was notable that there were more peopl
on the crisis. joining me is the former state department spokesman p.j. raleigh. are president obama's words strong enough in his defense of israel? >> absolutely. as he said in his remarks, no country should have to tolerate a barrage of missiles that put its entire population or a substantial percentage of its population at risk. israel has a right to respond. that said, obviously, how it responds and how it is viewed in this region, a fragile rv region given the events the last couple of years is very important. israel has some difficult calculations to make going forward. >> how about in terms of how chose we are to a middle east war, and if that happens what are the chances of u.s. involvement? how might that play out? >> that's the risk. we have a growing gaza crisis, a civil war in syria next door, unquiet along the israeli/egyptian border, substantial unrest in jordan. any flare-up in one of these, has potential to spread across to the other. most importantly, you have a fragile, you know, political systems. you have countries in transition. the populations and politics are more popu

the election, you don't like obama, that is probably true. isn't it important had a we are the united states of america? you feel a sense of obligation that we have to stay united? >> i think that is cruel irony. for people like and you that are committed to the principles of liberty and freedom as envisioned by our founders, when you look at it in the context of the governor's statement that he sees no reason to change the union, i think we're face with the reality that the union has fundamentally changed. we've got a federal government that treats states like texas as a cash cow, that has no regard for the sovereignty streets and treats us like a subdivision of the federal government. we have seen the transformation of what the union is and our organization is committed here to preserve and freedom and independence of texas. >> sean: explain constitutionally, you cite a lot of this in materials, where you see the right to do this if you get enough signatures and what would you like to happen next? >> first off, let's take it one step. the petition that is going to the white house will acco

house asking that certain states be allowed to secede from the union now that president obama has been re-elected. texas was the leader of the pack with one petition counting 70,000 signatures by yesterday afternoon. jon stewart weighed in. >> i think i can best express how i feel about these states and people in the words of the great william wonka. stm. >> stop. don't. come back. [ cheers and applause ] >> at least now i'm beginning to understand why southern states were so hesitant to get rid of the confederate flag. it's like keeping your fat pants after you lose some weight. you're happy for now with the new you, but pretty soon you're going to need those fat pants again! pizza! oh, demino's in staten island. >> then there's the issue of the latino vote which many republicans say they need if they have any hope of winning back the white house. listen to brian fisher, spokesman for conservative american family association they call themselves and you realize why the gop's problems with latinos run very deep. wait until you hear this guy. >> hispanics are not democrats, don't vote d
and planning -- or the third person -- at the u.s. state department during the first two years of the obama administration. anne marie thought wrote that -- she argued that nation-states should see the degree of sovereignty to what she called transnational networks. vertically, this is a direct quote, nations should cede sovereign authority to supernational institutions such as the international criminal court. so vertically. there'd be something above the nation, supernational institution. slaughter maintains that such transparent networks, quote -- this is a quote from slaughter: can perform many of the functions of a world government; legislation, administration and adjudication without the forum. thereby creating an effective global rule of law. well, she was the person and policy planning, the key think tank of the state department first two years of the obama administration. but there's also a republican i'm going to mention here, richard haas. he's currently the president of the council on foreign relations, and he was a special assistant to president george h.w. bush, and during the
on september 11th when this attack occurred. now, they all knew this was terror attack and so did our state department. david petraeus is not the only key actor in all of this. we have hillary clinton, eric holder and we have president obama. what did they know? when did they know it? injecting me now jay from law and justice and former c.i.a. covert operations officer and president of diligence llc, mike baker. welcome to hannity. what do you think. >> i think the first thing we had an october surprise in the election but we didn't find out about it until november. the situation with general petraeus while tragic for his family is not really the issue. its horrible set of events. but we had a chief c.i.a. director, chief spy for america so to speak, compromised. the attorney general of the united states knew this in september and failed to the tell the president of the united states that his c.i.a. director was being investigated by the f.b.i. i cannot imagine eric homelander would have done this. it was dereliction of duty. >> sean: he might not have done it. he may have told the presiden

to you our commander in chief the president of the united states of america barack obama. [applause] >> thank you. thank you so much. please everybody be seated. good morning everyone. thank you secretary for a lifetime of service for our nation and for being such an advocate on behalf of american's veterans including your fellow vietnam veterans. to rick delaney, to vice president biden, and admiral and major general, our outstanding veteran service organizations, our men and women in uniform, active guard and reserve, and most of all to the proud veterans and family members joining us in this sacred place, it is truly a privilege and an honor to be with all of you here today. each year on the 11th day of the 11th month we pause as a nation and as a people to pay tribute to you, to thank you, to honor you. the heroes over the generations who have served this country of ours with distinction. moments ago i laid a wreath to remember every service member who has ever worn our nation's uniform. this day first and foremost belongs to them and their loved ones. to the father and mother,
departure of general david petraeus from the cia tells us more about the state of our nation than a dozen petraeus. president barack obama should not have accepted his resignation. we seem to care more about the sex lives of our leaders down their real lives of our soldiers. i want to pick that apart one piece at a time. he suggests that his resignation says more about the nation about him? what do you mean? >> it worries me that we can throw away the leaders so casually. general petraeus is one of the more prominent generals of our time. the only general the american public has really been known since world war ii. a lot of generals tried and failed in iraq. petraeus succeeded. here we have a leader who has done well. something happened between him and another person, a private consenting adults, nothing illegal, and we throw him out. i do not think we can afford to do that. we did not use to do that. dwight eisenhower carried on with his chauffeur, a very good- looking red-haired british woman. he was not fired. ike, you gotta go home, you had an affair. that would be crazy. that is kin

of state, hillary clinton. a short while ago, president obama and hillary clinton had gone to her house. president obama bowed and shook her hand and hillary clinton gave her a huge hug. in the speech, president obama quoted her focusing especially on citizens in myanmar, as well as across asia, saying that fighting fear was really the key to success, economic and political development, and she really is an icon of that. president obama also talked more about reforms, press freedom, land ownership, the rule of law, the release of political prisoners, as well as the freedom there to worship. he said america will support you every step of the way, as you pursue democracy and economic development. he added too, growth can only be created if corruption is left behind. again, live pictures as you can see, president obama and hillary clinton leaving the room and she really is an icon in this country after having spent years under house arrest and now is the leader of the opposition. president obama too focused a little on his own personal history saying my own country taught me the power of d
the front lines. first up, president obama soon returning to the united states. he was on a trip to asia. while there, he visited thailand and myanmar. his final stop was cambodia, where he took part in the nations summit. wow. he also met with the camera bode yan prime minister where he talked about the need to provide human rights. one said the meeting was tense. it's been three weeks since sandy ravaged the east coast and the recovery is ongoing. tonight, many are are still without homes. businesses are still closed. new york city is still rationing gas. four new york city hospitals are still closed or only offering limited services and one o the main train services between new jersey and new york city is still operating with limited service. this video shows the new jersey path station flooding the night of the storm. these stations sustained significant damage. the dow was up nearly 208 points. nasdaq up by more than 2%. the s&p higher, too. the reason, traders are more optimistic the fiscal cliff will be avoided. they think leaders in washington will reach some sort of compromise.
senators are asking president obama to boost federal disaster aid to the states. officials at the maryland live! casino will be showing their plans for table games. this will happen in anne arundel county later today. legislation allowing table games passed in last week's general election. further raise the tobacco tax. it is scheduled to join isaiah leggett for a news conference later today calling for a $1 increase in maryland's tobacco tax. there was a special session back in 2007. >> the debate over a potential life-saving drug for overdoses on drugs like heroin. here's deborah weiner. >> overdose cases are exploding. what if there was an antidote and it could save lives? what is it was more widely available? for this mother, the only thing more numbing was discovering there is an inexpensive drug that might have allowed dan to survive. >> i was sad to know that i could have if he had it. will that make a difference? i will never know. >> what is the antidote? why can some get it for free? why do some see it as a terrible mistake? >> do we want to give them heroin next? the reality is,
who i'm related to. and she honestly believed that obama was not born in the united states or think that's an open question. that it is a socialist agenda. and i think that people in this bubble really did think that romney was certain to win because everybody they knew supported him and opposed obama. it's like the flip side of the old unfair joke about pauline kael who said, "how could nixon win in '72? everybody i know voted for mcgovern." apparently, she never actually said that. but we know the attitude it exemplifies. the right is now in that bubble. everybody they know hates obama. so how could all these people be voting for obama? >> in the hours leading up to the election, fox news devoted itself to speculation about romney's win. newt gingrich and others were talking about how big the romney landslide was going to be. gingrich thought it would be 300 electoral votes at least. >> i believe the minimum result will be 53-47 romney, over 300 electoral votes, and the republicans will pick up the senate. >> so are you suggesting that they, a conservative propaganda machine, was
and with the right sense from this week's -- several victories in several states against the drug war that maybe washington and maybe the obama administration will get the message that the time has come and that we do something that needs to become something of the past and in national discourse. tavis: this project called "the house i live in" release started in your house. >> as i was growing up, i am a white jewish american. my parents fled the holocaust and the czars of russia. we all looked at ourselves as people who needed to understand that we represented struggle in europe and that, as we would see a struggle in america, we would want to identify ourselves with that struggle. so african-americans became a natural brothers in struggle. it was natural to see the struggle for dignity for black people in america as a sister struggle of the jewish struggle. growing up, it was always a part of my breakfast cereal to think of myself as someone who is part of a larger struggle. as i grew up, i had a lot of friends in the african-american community and people close to my family, and one in partic
to recognize the sovereignty of the states. >> this comes on the heels of voters voting to legalize obama. >> president obama received 50,000 less votes than amendment 64. that should send a message this is a mainstream issue. they need to get board with the will of the voters. >> the national can i bass industry association say all marijuana cases should be frozen. he hopes the election should comment change. >> if they care about the will of the voters and their own political future they will back off. >> i hope that the medical can i bass collectives in california with language on. >> marijuana advocates do not expect california voters to be able to weigh in on legalization until 2016. governor brown says he will not bring up the issue of legalization, citing abuses in california's current system. >>> thousands of ballots are being counted around the state. check on where the eelectric results stands for races and measures where you live. >>> the nation paused today to remember the service and sacrifice of the men and women in uniform. many face challenges when they return from combat.
of people do. an online petition to ask texas to withdraw from the united states following president obama's re-election has more than 100,000 signatures. it appears on a section of the white house website called we the people and cites economic difficulties due to the federal government's inability to cut spending. supporters suggest that sus session would protect texans standard of living and resecure their rights and liberties. the leader of the movement tells politico that mr. obama's re-election is what he called a cat liezing moment for his group's efforts to leave the united states. he insists "this is not a reaction to person but policy." and what they see is a federal government disconnected from its constituents. really? so far no response from the white house. even though the number of signatures far surpasses the 25,000 needed for a white house response. for his part, governor perry says he believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it although he says he shares the frustrations a lot of americans have with the federal government. texas is ameri
president obama from nominating u.s. ambassador rice from becoming the next secretary of state. >> she has says this was not a pre-planned attack, why was that done? >> reporter: for weeks, the republicans have expressed their anger with rice, urging her to explain the appearances regarding the video and the protest over benghazi. >> this is in response to a hateful video. >> i have grave concerns. answers from ambassador rice before i could support her for any position. >> this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetent acts or engaged in a cover-up, neither of which are acceptable to the american people. >> reporter: also today, mueller and joyce briefed the top commanders on the scandal involving petraeus. the acting cia director, morrell, was also here for private meetings the big expectation tonight is that petraeus himself will come forward to testify about the benghazi attack, not his own troubles, as early as tomorrow or friday. now there are some differences among republicans about what is the best way to get to the bottom of what happened in
states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we take or are the re-- reactions that are going to be caused by our actions actually going to cause greater threats to our closest allies and to ourselves? unfortunately, that's what we're seeing. in fact, i had seen an article in may of 2010 that indicated that this administration, the obama administration, sided with israel's enemies in demanding that israel disclose any nuclear weapons. we had never sided with israel's enemies in trying to push israel into doing something against its own interests. when you're a very small country surrounded by countries that want to see you go away, it is important that they not know all of your defenses. going back in the old testament, you find history, king his kaija -- king hezekiah showing all the defenses they had in their armory he showed them to the leaders from babylon. as a result, ultimately that kingdom was lost to the babylonians. you don't show other nations, even people you th

processes at local and state levels in some countries in our continent which allow the production, consumption and legal distribution of marijuana. >> this is undoubtedly a headache for mr. obama. his administration has yet to make clear how it intends to impose federal law prohibitting the use of the drug on colorado and washington state. they stopped short of saying it might relax its attitude towards marijuana smuggling. marijuana is the main cash crop for the violent drug cartels and advocates in colorado and washington say it will reduce the gangs profits. but that is not a position currently shared by the obama administration. the leaders in central america least, u.s. drug consumption policy remains a very square peg in a round hole. will grant, "bbc news," mexico city. >> our main story this hour, the top american commander in afghanistan general john allen is to be investigated over emails to a woman at the heart of the petraeus scandal. time now for some business news. less of a scandal, but more of a mystery i think, with microsoft. what's going on there. it just launch

, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almost every other leading republican figure is saying the party really needs to look inside itself and change karl rove. in "the wall street journal" today, it's saying the republican party needs to reverse engineer what the obama campaign did in its turnout efforts. senator john cornyn of texas, the head of the se
